Life and career 
She was born on the Gold Coast. She is the granddaughter of Russ Hinze (Queensland Politician) and sister of Guy Hinze (ex-Qld Police officer and owner of Bubs Baby Shops). In 1994, when she was only 14 years old, Hinze was contracted to appear in the Australian edition of Vogue.
Hinze appeared on the tenth season of America's Next Top Model and was working at that time with Elite model management New York. She appeared on the cover and did a fashion spread for Vogue Australia in 2008.
Hinze was the host and head judge of Project Runway Australia during the first and second season, it was announced Megan Gale would be the host of the third season. She appeared on the first ever cover of the short lived Australian Edition of Ocean Drive magazine. Hinze portrayed Marc Anthony's love interest in the music video for his single "You Sang To Me", both the Spanish and English versions.
In October 2008, she became engaged to James H. Clark, founder of Silicon Graphics and Netscape. They married on 22 March 2009. Clark is 36 years Hinze's senior, the marriage attracted a lot of criticism. She reportedly bought a home in Australia online while taking a break from filming Adam Rifkin's Without Charlie in L.A.

- "My accent isn't too broad, like most Queenslanders. But yes, I do have to talk a little slower so people can understand what I am saying."
